My loving Ms. Katherine, this was an awesome lady. I met her through my sister Alice and from that day own we were friends, we had disagreements, got mad at each other but we always loved one another. I moved and lost contact with her for about a decade then one day I saw her nephew and he told me where she was, that was one of the happiest days in my life, I contacted her and went to go see her I was so happy to see her. Then my phone crashed and I lost her number again, and her address thank God my son still had her number and I called it was disconnected, I then knew my sweet sugar was gone so I looked up her name and here she is, looking so sweet as she always do, Tommy and family I'm so sorry for the great loss this woman loved the Lord with all her heart, her life was about God she was a praying friend, grandmother, mother and world prayer I love her she helped me when I needed someone I came in town with my son with NO WHERE to go and she let us into her home. She took care of the things that she worked hard for I remember one day I broke her bed (I'm a big woman) and she told me you need to get it fixed or get out LOL. my preacher came and fix it to where it never broke again, she was so good to me and my son she was like a second mom. Thank you Lord for having such an angel on earth now she rest in Abrahams bosom
